Disclaimer: SAP launched the new SAP Learning Hub on the 13th of January. As a member of the Certification Engangement & Influence Council and SAP Mentor, I have received full access from SAP. I will be providing SAP with feedback on different aspects of SAP Learning Hub.

Update: instant access to SAP Learning Hub Discovery edition is now possible after submitting your order!

That being said, this blog has the sole purpose to provide information on how you can get access to the SAP Learning Hub (whatever flavor you fancy).

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/opening_363566.jpg

To start, navigate to https://training.sap.com

In the right upper corner, you can see the link to log in, click “Login” to login to the Training and Certification Shop. To login, use the SAP ID which you want to get access for. If you don’t yet have an account, you can click on Register to create one.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/suser_364292.jpg

Once you are logged in, click on My Profile in the upper right corner and then on S-User Management.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/assignment_364293.jpg

If you don’t yet have a current S-user Assignment, fill in your S-user in the right pane, fill in the password of your S-user and click “Add New S-User”. This is to bind one or more S-user accounts to your SAP shop account. If you don’t perform this step, processing your item you purchase (or get for free) will take longer. Once this is done, you are ready to start purchasing.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/learninghub_364294.jpg

Learning Hub is featured in the gray bar so you can use that link to navigate to Learning Hub relevant items in the SAP Training and Certification Shop.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/options_364298.jpg

On the right lower pane you can find the different available edition and information about the SAP Learning Hub.

We choose SAP Learning Hub, discovery edition here. The discovery edition is meant to give you a sneak peak of how the SAP Learning Hub works, what it has to offer with certain restrictions compared to the full version of course.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/book_364299.jpg

Click on Add to basket to add the SAP Learning Hub, discovery edition to your shopping basket. Note the 0.00 price.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/proceed_364300.jpg

Click on proceed to basket.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/checkout_364302.jpg

Click Proceed to checkout.

/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/submit_364303.jpg

Check the data in the upper part of the screen for correctness.

In the lower right corner you have to accept the terms and conditions (you can read them using the link which is mentioned on top of this gray area) and then you can submit the order.

Update: discovery edition instant access

The order is now processed immediately and you’ll receive access to SAP Learning Hub instantly. Once you have access, it can take some time 20 minutes or so before the content has been generated on your account. Once you find courses when refreshing or using search, you are ready to go with the discovery edition.

Once your order is processed and your user-id is created, you should receive a notification from SAP.

Accessing the SAP Learning Hub


You are welcomed to the SAP Learning Hub, discovery edition and you are now ready to go.

Update: you also see a link in the green navigation bar after logging in, to access the SAP Learning Hub.

    Also getting the problem with the S-user.  I assumed it was because I’d changed it earlier today (I know SCN can take over a day to synchronise) but if other people are getting it too…

    Hi experts,

    I’m doing research for my company about the Learning Hub Discovery Edition and i was wondering if its possible to get certification for any of the short courses offered on the Discovery Edition or you only get certification for the courses you have to pay subscriptions for.

    Thanks,

    Thandeka

    1. Tom Cenens Post author

      Hi Thandeka

      Certification is a separate process. Learning Hub can facilitate in the sense that one can go through course content to prepare for SAP Certification but there is no such thing as online certification for example.

      The samples won’t be sufficient to go for certification in terms of preparation.

      Best regards

    Hi everyone!

    I cannot create this S-User.

    I have no S-User but when I try to add one it says password is wrong. But I am just creating it – how could it be wrong?

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance

    Simone

    1. Tom Cenens Post author

      Hi Simone

      You shouldn’t try to create one yourself over there. If you don’t have one, you should get one by requesting access to the discovery edition when SAP then generates one for you. So you don’t have to perform the step assign S-user when you don’t have one.

      BEst regards

      Tom

      Hello Rajanath Guntur

      Can you not order the learning hub discovery edition without any S-user? I believe so, so just skip that step and try to order without S-user.

      Best regards

      Tom

      Hi Sandeep

      If you don’t have S-user, skip the user assignment steps and a user will be created for you.

    Hi Tom,

    I was able to log in to training.sap.com, and browsed various E-Learning courses.

    while the page does display the course content, however no “booking” of course can be done because the “booking this offering” says “You are currently viewing a Global course template, this course is not currently available to book online.”…

    I checked with “free E-learning” courses.. same issue…

    Is there anything that I am missing or need to do before the free E-courses can be “booked” and viewed?

    Thx in advance for your help.

    Regards,

    Hello Tom,

    Once i click Check Out , it is showing me Primary S-user id which is my previous


    employer from where I have done my SAP certification(S- User id belongs to my Certification id while previous employer name is also appearing there) .

    Should i proceed further Or some changes needs to be done.

    Please help.

    1. Tom Cenens Post author

      Hi Jitendra

      If you don’t want to use that S-user, best is to clean your browser cache, close the browser and go through the steps again, this time logging in as a different S-user or if you want a new S-user that is not bound to a  company, don’t perform the s-user login / assignment step and just order (only applicable for discovery edition).

      Best regards

      Tom

    Hi tom

    1. Tom Cenens Post author

      Hi Anand

      An individual should be able to buy Learning Hub, please  verify by sending a mail to e-learning@sap.com

      Is it advisable, that in my opinion, depends on what you are trying to achieve I suppose, what area your active in etc. Let’s discuss, drop me a mail (if you haven’t already) on my gmail address, you can find it in my profile.

    Hi,

    I have just placed an order for discovery edition of sap learning hub without using s-user (I don’t have one). I used the country “Global”. Will I get access to free learning materials? If yes, how much time will it take? I am also unable to create an s-user, it gives me an error “Could not validate the entered s-user”. I tried different user names. Can you please tell me how to create an s-user? And should I process an other order for discovery edition using the newly created s-user to gain instant access?

    Thanking you.

    Regards,

    Mudasser

    Hi Tom,

    Am currently using leaning hub with no access to learning history. What is the process to activate the learning history on learning hub.

    Please let me know

    Regards

    Sam

    1. Tom Cenens Post author

      Hi Sam

      Only finished items will appear in the learning history report if you generate that report. I don’t see the option anymore myself to complete a course to place it in the learning history but that’s the way it should be done.

      If I call up the reporting and select one year back from example up till now, I do get entries back of courses I have completed.

      I’ll check with SAP to see what’s going on there 😉 .

      Best regards

      Hi Thomas

      SAP learning rooms (Social Learning) runs on SAP JAM. SAP JAM is SAP’s social network “product” to which you are redirected if you join / participate in a Learning Room. If you subscribe for a learning room, it can take some time before the actual invite to join the SAP JAM group reaches you.

      You can try to log on to SAP JAM outside of Learning Hub if you want:

      https://jam4.sapjam.com/extranet/jamatsap.com

      You should be able to logon using your S-user or Mail address that is associated for SAP Learning Hub there.

      If you run into problems, you can contact SAP JAM support via support@sap.com

      Get Support

      For more information, see service.sap.com/sapjamfaq. If you need more help, you can send an e-mail to sapjam.support@sap.com.

        Hi Tom,

        It’s just weird.

        I changed my browser from firefox into chrome, and everything works fine.

        Now I can browse the learning content.

        Thank you.

        Hi Ashok

        This is not S-user creation. This is S-user assignment, where you can get your existing S-user assigned to your account.

        If you don’t have an S-user, skip this step and proceed without it.

        Best regards

        Tom

      Hi Romit

      You might have to wait a bit longer, not sure what happened there.

      If it still occurs, please contact support e-learning@sap.com

      and explain what happens (providing screenshots in word doc for example with step by step what you do can help them to help you faster)

      Best regards

      Hi

      Discovery edition is free of charge and has a selection of courses or course material you can go through (not necessary the full version of a course, can be parts of a course).

      Best regards

    If you had numbered steps, I’d reference the one I’m having trouble with. Where you mention not having an S-user assignment, there’s Assign New S-User. It says to enter s-user (I have no idea what that is or what to enter, so I entered my I number). and then it has a button “Trigger Assignment“. The screenshot you have above doesn’t match what I see. I can’t seem to upload a screenshot due to some permissions thing. If I enter anything else, it says “could not validate the entered s-user”. So I’m not sure what to do. When I entered my I Number it said it would send me something, but I didn’t receive anything. So what do I do? I’m logged in as an employee of SAP.

    Thanks a lot Tom Cenens  for that information.

    The steps to access the Learning Hub and Learning Rooms once the purchase is processed are clear:

    1. Login to the SAP Training Shop https://training.sap.com.
    2. Go to My Training.
    3. Click on HUB001.
    4. Click on Go to Learning Hub.
    5. Select Learning Content or Learning Rooms.

    Is there a simple, single link that Partners could bookmark to access directly the Learning Content and the Learning Rooms?

    Thanks a lot.

      Hi Julien,

      I logon in https://training.sap.com and then I get this:

      /wp-content/uploads/2015/01/access_627223.png

      So I then just click this button and I’m in.

      In theory you could bookmark the link once you’re in the Learning HUB but the authentication already takes place on https://training.sap.com so I don’t think it will work unless you’re already logged in with your account before in that browser. If you have no previous login, you’ll end up on a login page over there.

      Best regards

      Hi Peter

      As far as I’m aware, you can’t. It only works for specific items (e-learning) where it’s ticked off that you went through.

    Hey Tom,

    I realize this is an old blog post – but I do not have an S-User account (at least I don’t seem to) and I cannot figure out how to get one.

    Could you point me in the right direction to get one set up?

    Thanks.

    1. Tom Cenens Post author

      Hi Jay

      No worries, e-mail notifications are enabled 😉 . You don’t need to assign an S-user if you don’t have one.

      If you don’t have a partnership with SAP, there is also what they call a P-user (Public) which would be generated automatically as far as I know when you request access to Learning Hub Discovery edition.

      In the past (not sure if it’s still valid), the processing just took a bit longer because of this.

      So you should be able to just order the Learning Hub Discovery Edition (which is 0 euro since it’s a sort of trial) and that will automatically be  handled.

      Best regards

      Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you for your support. I have access to only 8 courses in discovery edition while I have seen a long list of courses available for free or as a preview (like in

    SAP Learning Hub, discovery edition Overview of Contents pdf file). Can you please guide me how can I access more free courses?

    Thanking you.

    Hi Tom

    Thanks for the Information. May I ask you if it is possible to use Learning Hub without S-User Registration? I think about company email or social network login.?

    Kind Regards

    1. Tom Cenens Post author

      Hi Peter

      Not that I know off. I tried it just now to log-on with my P-user (public user ID that is bound to a personal mail address) without success. So it looks like a S-user is a prerequisite.

      Best regards
